GALLERY. 1. AV [Note: Authorized Version.] in Song of Solomon 7:6 reads ‘The king is held in the galleries.’ The Heb. is bârehâtîm , which, there is no reasonable doubt, means ‘in the tresses’ (so RV [Note: Revised Version.] ). The king is captivated, that is to say, by the tresses of this ‘prince’s daughter.’ 2. AV [Note: Authorized Version.] and RV [Note: Revised Version.] tr. [Note: translate or translation.] of attîq , a word whose etymology and meaning are both obscure. It is found only in the description of Ezekiel’s temple ( Ezekiel 41:18 ; Ezekiel 41:16 ; Ezekiel 42:8 ; Ezekiel 42:8 ).
